Specific spending profiles within the Spending Review 2021 period for Pioneer will be confirmed if the UK cannot secure association on fair and appropriate terms and once the launch date for Pioneer is known. The Government is discussing association to Horizon Europe with the EU, and hope our negotiations will be successful, that is our preference.
